Hello, Gruffalo!

It seemed like just another ordinary Saturday morning but the kids were actually in for a treat! The Gruffalo dropped by and paid us a visit to the delight of the older children (and the horror of the younger ones).

The kids adore the Gruffalo (terrible tusks and all) and love to read about him, watch him on DVD, and see him in action on the stage. So when the Gruffalo himself appeared at their grandfather’s doorstep with his knobbly knees and turned out toes, they were beside themselves with excitement!

The babies were a bit frightened of this creature with orange eyes and purple prickles, but when it was time for him to go, they decided to put aside their fear and gave him high fives and hugs. The older ones couldn’t bear to see him go and followed him all the way to the lift.
